Diesel, the last successful alternative fuel got its start after World War I in merchant marine where fuel consumption per unit was greatest. The same could occur now for LNG. The catalyst for this transition is the U.S. and Canadian government's decision to institute emission regulations that will challenge petroleum-fueled fleets. Already in Northern Europe, LNG is becoming commonplace for centrally fueled fleets, such as offshore workboats, ferries and short-sea transporters.
This seminar will examine LNGâ€™s potential to gain a sustainable foothold in the marine sector, including how and where this is likely to unfold. Presentations will review current LNG-powered fleets, development activities, environmental regulations, and technological advancements.
